The collection will be on show at Spazio Dimore, Via Solferino 11, and at SaloneSatellite at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile.

This&That is a collection of 10 glass blown domes especially designed for the Salone del Mobile by FABRICA’s young artists, by an idea of American designer Tak Cheung.


This&That combines everyday items, such as a bicycle handlebar, a chimney or cow ears, with the sophisticated beauty of blown glass. Different materials and production processes merge harmoniously to create a new, provocative synergy.


This&That collection is a limited edition of 30 pieces for each subject.

    Oh my God… Fabrica is like this nowadays.

    I believe it is time to give place to another designer(s) at Fabrica. This is so… bad. I’m sorry but it is.

    We miss Hayon days. Fabrica is not Fabrica anymore.

  • This does beg the question, why?

  • I love Jaime , I love Sam…I love Benetton …

    Impressive and powerful work on so many levels; I feel a strong connection with the hammer that didn’t brake the glass. It’s is so touching. I’m sorry I ever said designer weren’t artists.
